    Gimp Print is an opensource project which works through the CUPS system in Jaguar. Basically, if your current printer is not supported under Jaguar.... it is now. Lots of printer drivers.

    Gimp-Print is a package of high quality printer drivers for Mac OS X Jaguar, Darwin, Linux, BSD, Solaris, IRIX, and other UNIX-alike operating systems. In many cases, these drivers rival or exceed the OEM drivers in quality and functionality. Our goal is to produce the highest possible output quality from all supported printers. To that end, we have done extensive work on screening algorithms, color generation, and printer feature utilization. We are continuing our work in all of these areas to produce ever higher quality results, particularly on the ubiquitous, inexpensive inkjet printers that are nonetheless capable of nearly photographic output quality. Additionally, Gimp-Print provides excellent drivers for many printers that are otherwise unsupported on Mac OS X.

    Network Printer possible now?

    I was reading the website a little. It looks like this is my only option when using Jaguar if I want to print to a shared printer attatched to a windows xp box. I've got an iBook with airport hooked to a network that's also got a windows xp box on it. I've got a lexmark z53 printer (usb) and I want to leave it plugged into my pc but share it so that when my ibook wants to print, i can just do it over the network and not plug the printer to the ibook. Anyone familiar with this? It's gotta be a fairly common situation.
